2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Hop using STAMPlorations

STAMPlorations is another one of the many sponsors for the Summer Coffee Lovers Hop.  It is my pleasure that I design for this company, and get to share a few of the new coffee products!

I'll start out with the Zen Coffee ATC #1.  Yes, this is an ATC size image, and I did cut this out with the  ATC Tag Builder Die.  I adhered it onto a card base [since I make cards], and added on some washi tape.

Now this image is totally fun; Caffeinated Zen 3.  The image is bigger about 4" high, and makes for a great "cup" card!  I colored the sleeve with my sharpies, and stamped the inside too.

Cute isn't it?

For this card, I used What's Brewing.  There are many fun images in this set.  I kept my card CAS, but I do like the pop of the green background panel [cut with Crazy Double-Stitched Rectangles.].

So, that's it for me and a few of STAMPlorations new coffee images.  Don't forget, Shery is running a 15% off sale through July 7th for STAMPloration's 4th birthday, AND, you can save an additional 20% off using my code; STAMPGIRLVICKID!

2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Hop using Dare 2B Artzy

It's that awesome time again - the Coffee Lover's Hop week.  Since I design for 2 of the [many] sponsors, I wanted to make a couple of cards.

I'll start with Dare 2B Artzy.  Cindy has some super fun coffee sets, and this week, they are 10% off!

I stenciled the background panel with distress inks [in Summer colors], and then spritzed with water for the muted effect.  I colored my coffee mug with my Copics.

I used Cup of Cheer to make this card.

I went on to make this card;

For this card, I did a water color wash background and used the Perfect Blend stamp set.

Make It Monday #288

It has been months since I have played in the PTI Make It Monday Challenge.  This week, Lexi had a fun tool to use - pantone ink chips. 

I used the fun PTI set; Boy Basics: Skater Dude with the matching die.  [Apparently, the set had been discontinued].  This card will be perfect for my son when he starts college.  He is excited about it, and "totally stoked" ;).

I had fun making this simple card.  I might even make more in the near future!

Inspired By Stamping Day

It's my Inspired By Stamping day here today.  I'll also name the winner of my last week's give away at the end of this post.

For today's card, I used the Just For You stamp set.  I also used [the retired] Flowers in Bloom. Sorry about the retired set, but I totally love the Just For You set! Fortunately, there are other beautiful floral sets that you could use for this layout.

Okay, the random chosen WINNER of my $20 gift certificate for Inspired By Stamping [with free USA shipping] goes to:
#13 Denise Bryant!

Just Us Girls #398 - Color Week

 I can't wait to see what the team did with these colors. They say masculine to me.

 My card, while encouraging, is definitely for a male. 

I used distress oxide inks, with water splatters for my background, and a sentiment from IBS Water Color Sentiments [sold out].  The Circle Loop dies are from Simon Says.

Okay, your turn.  How do you see using the above colors?  Come on over to Just Us Girls Challenge, and show us your stuff.

Happy Little Stampers Challenges

The Happy Little Stampers Challenges are on a monthly basis.  I rather like that as it gives me lots of time to join in.

I had every intention of making separate cards.  That didn't happen.  All the challenges came together in one ATC!  How fun is that.

I used a Die-namics flower die; Blooming Carnation [Whoa - it looks like they are out of business!] , and my Hugs is from CUTplorations.  That is 3 of the requirements; ATC, flower, die cut, and the last is glitter.  Yep, stripe down the side.  So, this cute little ATC qualifies for the following HLS Challenges;

The CAS Challenge is smooshing.  I did that for my Hugs.  I don't think this will qualify since it's really not that CAS, but I'm entering it anyway. :)

I did have making fun this tiny ATC.  Thanks Happy Little Stampers~

CAS-ual Fridays Day

I was scheduled to do a CAS-ual Friday card for today, but Michele decided to change up the schedule.  Because my card was already done, I'll still share with all of you.

I LOVE the font in this Breathe set!  LOVE IT!  Actually, I also love my card.  It is CAS, but still packs a punch.  I love the encouraging sentiment too.

I hope you enjoyed my card today~

Dare 2B Artzy Day

I have a co-worker who is leaving [so sad] to become a brand new stay home mom [so happy].  I am really going to miss this chick, and I wanted to give her a card to let her know that. :)

Using the Butterfly Kisses set, along with a sentiment from the Totally Tracy Spring Into Life helped me make the perfect card for her.

I used the direct to paper technique with my inks [I do love this look].  The nice solid stamped butterflies work well with it too [I think].

I think my co-worker will like this card.  It has the perfect sentiment for her for sure!  I hope you like it too!
